Particularly well formed crystals of Quartz from the Lanterdan (Slate) Quarry, Tintagel, Cornwall. The quarry was developed in the Upper Delabole Slate member, and reputed to be one of the largest in north Cornwall. Areas in the slates are cut by veins of Quartz with Albite. This particular specimen of Quartz we have displays a major crystal measuring to 10cm tall with other Quartz crystals in parallel position. Crystals of Quartz are sharply terminated very lustrous and gemmy colourless to translucent white. These are large crystals of Quartz from the quarry.
